Lester young - a lester young story
Lester Young loved Frank Sinatra records and Frank loved Lester. Now, we might recognize Arlene Francis for her decades old run on the game show What’s My Line? but there was also a 23 year run on WOR Radio in New York where she was host of a popular talk show. In this fascinating clip, Arlene interviews Sinatra, as he answers her question of whether it’s important for an instrumentalist (or conductor) to understand the lyrics of a song. Interesting!
In 1994 Verve Records released a CD version of The Lester Young Trio which combined all 8 tracks from the 1946 Hollywood trio recordings, plus an alternate take of "I Cover the Waterfront" and an additional shortened version of "Back to the Land", together with 4 additional tracks recorded earlier by a quintet with Nat King Cole (but without Lester Young or Buddy Rich).
